Ron, if you really rather promote your album then play basketball, walk away from your contract and let the Pacers spend the money on someone who really cares about two things: playing basketball and winning.
You heard it here first…if Ron Artest is playing for the Pacers again this season, they won’t win the championship. Having any individual on a team that pulls a stunt like Artest will pull everyone else down.
As a Celtics fan, it wouldn’t hurt me in theory if he brought the Pacers down because of his antics. However, it hurts the game of basketball by pulling this stunt and ultimately the Celtics.
I thought Iverson and Bryant were the ultimate poster boys of what was wrong with the NBA. Guess I am wrong, there is a new poster boy that is even worse then them.
